This week saw the release of the hotly anticipated eight instalment in the Star Wars saga,
The Last Jedi, which is well on its way to smashing box office records.
But exactly how much does it need to make to be the highest grossing opening run of all time?
The current record is set by Avatar, which made over $2.5bn worldwide, but lists of highest-grossing
movies are usually unfairly dominated by films from recent years,
because inflation means that their takings are much higher than those from years gone by.
With that in mind, we’ve taken a look at 50 of the highest grossing and most-loved
movies in history and adjusted them for inflation, and you might be surprised at some
of the names that came out on top.
